Storm Chasers Series Premiere

Mondays From 4th January, 9.00pm

Storm Chasers roars back this January for an all-new series. Get a front row seat to nature’s fury in the heart of “Tornado Alley” as scientists, researchers and weather enthusiasts gear up and hunker down in their pursuit of the ultimate tornado footage. Reed Timmer and his team return with their newly armored chase vehicle “The Dominator,” racing to be first on the storm scene ahead of IMAX filmmaker Sean Casey and his monster tank-like TIV (Tornado Intercept Vehicle).

New this season is veteran researcher and storm chaser Tim Samaras, whose even keel, steady leadership is in marked contrast to the frenzied atmosphere and roller coaster of emotions inside Timmer and Casey’s teams. Last year, Sean, still collecting footage for his dream IMAX film, continued his quest to film from inside an actual tornado. After being paired the first two seasons with researcher and long-time storm chaser Dr Joshua Wurman, Sean is now with a new team of young, eager but inexperienced trackers. Can the newbies rise to the challenge?
